Al Sharpton Would Like The FCC To Regulate Rush Limbaugh’s Speech

Posted by | December 7, 2010 10:31 | Filed under: Top Stories

Much as I have distaste for the Rush Limbaugh’s racially-charged rhetoric, the thought of getting the FCC involved in what he can or can’t say is even more distasteful.  Sharpton made his argument on Ed Schultz’ show (via Mediaite).

We have a series of meetings going on, and we’re going to see the FCC next week. We’re not going to stand by and allow publicly regulated radio and television just go for marketing and promoting this kind of racism. Here’s a man who calls the president names, plays a record calling him the good negro that has the formal majority whip sore soon-to-be Jim Clayburn as “Driving Miss Nancy” trying to play off Driving Miss Daisy.

Rush Limbaugh has the right to see whatever he wants to say. He can’t do it on publicly regulated air waves. The FCC has the responsibility to set standards to say the public cannot be offended based on their race or gender in this country, and you federally regulated air waves that they give licenses to that are very competitive and the FCC? Is very selective based on standards.
